Classic Computer Science Problems in Python deepens your knowledge of problem solving techniques from the realm of computer science by challenging you with time-tested scenarios, exercises, and algorithms. As you work through examples in search, clustering, graphs, and more, you'll remember important things you've forgotten and discover classic solutions to your "new" problems!
This book is one of three products included in the Python Gymnasium bundle. Get the entire bundle for only $49.99.

about the technology

Computer science problems that seem new or unique are often rooted in classic algorithms, coding techniques, and engineering principles. And classic approaches are still the best way to solve them! Understanding these techniques in Python expands your potential for success in web development, data munging, machine learning, and more.

about the book

Classic Computer Science Problems in Python sharpens your CS problem-solving skills with time-tested scenarios, exercises, and algorithms, using Python. You'll tackle dozens of coding challenges, ranging from simple tasks like binary search algorithms to clustering data using k-means. You'll especially enjoy the feeling of satisfaction as you crack problems that connect computer science to the real-world concerns of apps, data, performance, and even nailing your next job interview!

A fun way to get hands-on experience with classical computer science problems in modern Python.

Jens Christian Bredahl Madsen, IT Relation

Highly recommended to everyone who is interested in deepening their understanding, not only of the Python language, but also of practical computer science.

Daniel Kenney-Jung, MD, University of Minnesota

Classic problems presented in a wonderfully entertaining way with a language that always seems to have something new to offer.
